16" makita electric chain saw great tool
This is my second one. First one got borrowed and not returned. He got a good saw. I put a 20" bar on that one and will do the same to rid on. Great tool. Always starts.

110V 16" Makita electric saw
I have had the uc4000 for over 10 years and have cut 10 cords of oak each year. Gave up on the Husky gas saw and bought a 2000 watt Honda portable generator to take it into the forest. Cuts 20" trees, reduces them all to 20" logs for the tractor and trailer to haul home. Can't break it, go through 2 chains a year cutting dead oak, but the ease and rate of cut cannot be beat in the long run. I got it initially with some hesitation, but now rarely start up the gas saw.

Great Saw
I got tired of 2 stroke chainsaws that lasted a season or two and then quit. This unit does the work of most I've owned and is like the energizer bunny...

Incredible Torque, Always
In Truth I have the previous model, and love it, my only complaint with the original was the length of the handle which it appears they've addressed with this new model. The only other complaint I'd have is you really have to watch the chain oil level because you can get busy and end up running it dry if you're not careful. Some type of indicator or if the saw just stopped once the oil level got low and maybe a little red pin light would come on. It's amazing how much torque an electric motor has, this is easily equivalent to say a Stihl Model 230-250 in cutting ability. I also went to the local Stihl dealer and they made me up several chains on the spot for extras so getting additional chains is no problem

Best Electric Chain
When I buy I buy for Quality and Function, you can't beat the Quality and Function of the Makita Electric Chain saw. The performance surpasses any other electric or gas powered 16" saw that I have ever used!

Makita Rocks
If you think gas chain saws are the only way to go, maybe not. I have a very extensive line of tools from Makita and never had to make any excuses for their performances. This electric chain saw continues the process.Any doubts ,forget it..I have simple tastes, only the best, I buy.. Sure, it costs more, but the big smile on your face...priceless

i am sold on the electric
I wasn't sure about being tethered to a cord but it is great to just be able to stop the saw, move the branches or whatever, then continue to cut. I've only had the saw for a month, so don't know about long term reliability. I've cut about 4 inch branches without any struggle on the engine.
